The expanding Internet of Things (IoT) technology offers the ease of communication with and access to multiple services for companies and individuals. However, because of the limited trustworthiness set on smart devices, as well as the ever-increasing amount of them, challenges for security and privacy protection have been growing. In this paper, we propose a new authentication solution that enables a smart device to securely connect to services, based on attributebased credentials. Our solution allows IoT devices to authenticate to various services in an efficient way, without compromising their privacy. Indeed, during the authentication of an IoT device to a particular service, a new credential is generated such that only relevant attributes are disclosed to the actual service. Moreover, this operation is delegated to a gateway in order to relieve the workload at devices' side.
